The kit uses a new behind-the-wall self-adhesive backplate and fiber reinforced compound to allow repairs for holes ranging from 3 in. to 5 in. It comes with all the necessary tools to complete a wall repair, including a 12 oz. tub of wall repair compound, a 6-inch putty knife, a 6-inch self-adhesive back plate and the 3M sanding pad to smooth the surface after patching. The finished patch is so strong it will even hold nails and screws. To find out more visit
